dc.description.abstract The purpose of the Landing Site Workshop is to evaluate potential landing sites best suited to achieving stated mission science objectives within the constraints imposed by engineering requirements and the necessity of ensuring a safe landing. A NASA-appointed Landing Site Steering Committee and the Mars Exploration Rover Project will use the results of the workshop as the basis for narrowing the list of potential landing sites under consideration. Community consensus with respect to high priority sites will also be solicited. In addition, the workshop will provide a means for identifying potential landing sites as targets for the MGS MOC during the upcoming extended mission. en
